Interface Creation – Using the Compilers

Rod Evans, January 2, 2005

In Dynamic Object Versioning, I covered how the interface of a dynamic object could be established by defining the interface symbols within a mapfile, and feeding this file to the link-edit of the final object. Establishing an object's interface in this manner hides all non-interface symbols, making the object more robust and less vulnerable to symbol name space pollution. This symbol reduction also goes a long way to reducing the runtime relocation cost of the dynamic object.
